The Tu-134A was equipped with more advanced D-30 engines of the second series with reduced fuel consumption and thrust reverse, due to which the brake parachute was no longer needed, and an auxiliary power unit (APU) TA-8 was installed in the rear fuselage, where the parachute was located. . In addition, the Tu-134A fuselage became longer by 2.1 m, the number of passenger seats increased to 76.
